Changi Airport is Asia's largest cargo airport and Singapore boasts the world's busiest transshipment point, providing vital air and sea connections to every part of the world.
Trusted logistics hub
Singapore is an important global logistics hub and conduit for world trade, topping The World Bank's 2014 Logistics Performance Index. It is the regional nerve centre for 20 of the 25 top global logistics players like DHL, TNT, FedEx, Kehne + Nagel, Sankyu, Schenker, Toll Logistics, UPS and Yusen Logistics.
Centre for world-class urban transport solutions
Singapore is a high-density city, and yet is one of the least congested major cities in the world. As one of the world leaders in urban transportation and infrastructure, the city has pioneered the use of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) solutions such the Electronic Road Pricing system.
Aerospace Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) hub for Asia
Singapore's aerospace industry is one of the fastest growing in the world, with over 100 leading aerospace companies such as ST Aerospace, Goodrich and Rolls-Royce based in the country. Additionally, the Seletar Aerospace Park supports the aviation industry with world-class infrastructure and facilities, attracting clusters of companies to co-locate, in order to extract synergies.
Our Focus Moving Ahead
Understanding Asia's needs
Business events in the transport sector have flourished over the years. The Singapore Airshow, one of the industry's top three, had over US$32 billion worth of deals signed in 2014. Asia Pacific Maritime grew at a rate of 17 per cent in exhibition space, while the newly launched Singapore International Transport Congress welcomed over 1,000 international C-suite buyers. Burgeoning passenger numbers call for immediate infrastructure, and indicate a vast potential for MICE events which can facilitate partnerships to address infrastructure gaps and investment models. As oil prices rise and developing economies battle with pollution, sustainable travel and logistics is also an important area of focus; as is the unique realm of user-centred comfort and design.
